And so it begins!
I had a great response to my tester post yesterday so I will continue posting on weight loss and fitness in the lead up to our honeymoon! I am going to take the before bikini pictures tonight all being well but wont post them until I have an after to post alongside them.. just seems unnecessarily humiliating otherwise! I got lots of great tips from those of you that commented on yesterdays post two of which I will be using myself. The first is...
My Fitness Pal!
I downloaded this from the app store this morning and it's really fascinating to see how many calories are in the foods I eat every day. It suggests 2lb a week weight loss but we all know I want better results than that so naughty as it is I will be trying to stick to 1000 calories rather than the 1200 I'm advised to (just for the next month, then I will be good, promise). I'm starting each day will a bowl of special k, then lunch around 12 and I will attempt dinner for around 5.30. I know ordinarily I eat too late and skip meals throughout the day which slows metabolism and leads to snacking on sugary things so first things first I need to change my eating routine! Secondly.. more water! We all know that's important but there was a time that I wouldn't drink anything all day if we had no full fat coke so that alone is a huge habit to break. I'm allowing myself sweet things here and there but I'm not the biggest sweet tooth.. more a snacker so that's my biggest hurdle.
The next tip I'm taking is..
Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred
I'd never even heard of this but having read the reviews and seen the before and after bloggers I couldn't sign up quick enough! I downloaded the 3 work outs from itunes as I'm super impatient and will let you know how I get on! That everyday plus twice weekly Zumba sessions have GOT to help, right?
So that's it.. my next post will likely consist of meal plans and a look at my shake weight which has been sitting gathering dust since I bought it 3 months ago.
Any of you doing a similar thing leave me your links below!
